Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan has extended his contract with the studio that produces the show, Sony Pictures Television, in a deal that will take him through its fifth and final season.

The 18-month deal will include any additional shows that Gilligan develops during that time, according to Sony — though there was no word on what the “X-Files” producer has planned after his Emmy-winning AMC series.

“Breaking Bad” will return in the fall with 16 episodes that are expected to be split into two eight-episode halves.

The deal has been expected since tense negotiations between Sony and AMC led to a deal for the show’s fifth and final season.
